americans were attacked again. in two attacks, in egypt and in libya. apparentry terrorists attacking us again on 9/11. the embassy in egypt was stormed. the american flag was brought down and a black flag was raised by those who came into the compound. in libya, the consulate was attacked, set afire and our ambassador to libya, chris stevens, was murdered. and according to the bbc hi body was brought through the streets in benghazi. the groups are individuals that committed these acts must be found. there's no evidence yet there was any act by either one of these two governments but by individuals or even by groups. in libya, al qaeda cousins, as i call them, claims responsibility for the murder of our u.s. ambassador. it's no coincidence that these two attacks occurred nearly at the same time and they both occurred on the anniversary of 9/11. immediately, the attackers blamed a movie that was produced as the reason, an excuse, a justification for murdering. it's never the fault of a movie. it's never the fault of the united states. it's never the fault of western culture that people ar
. in libya, 52-year-old christopher stevens, the american ambassador to that country was murdered last night along with three other american citizens. fox news has obtained information that those killings were apparently planned. not a spontaneous demonstration. but in egypt the situation was very different. as hundreds of muslims attacked the u.s. embassy because some crank here in america put out an anti-muslim video. because of the internet, that kind of stuff goes worldwide very quickly and the video gave those nuts in cairo an excuse to turn violent. to try to head that off, the u.s. embassy there issued a statement saying quote: the embassy of the united states and cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religion is just feelings of muslims as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions, unquote. again, that statement was issued before, before the american embassy was attacke now, as talking points stated yesterday, muslim fanatics will use any excuse to attack not only americans but anyone they consider to be an infidel. there is no ques
against the film beganouts the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, but it appears to have been a well armed, well coordinateed event with indirect and direct fire from machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades. four americans were killed, including j. christopher stevens and information management officer sean smith. secretary of state hillary clinton eulogized the ambassador and defended the america's commitment to libya. >> everywhere chris and his team went in libya in a country scared by war and tyranny, they were hailed as friends and partners. the world needs more chris stevens. >> eliot: and at the white house, president obama condemned the attacks. >> obama: there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. and make no mistake, we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people. >> eliot: but unfortunately and predictably there was a political dimension to this as well with protest against the film tuesday morning. a foreign service officer in the embassy tried to calm the situation with a tweet condemnic the
bad it is. the arab spring brought corruption and theft of u.s. aid to light in libya and egypt but africa is rife with stories of theft and dictator spoils. nugaema is the son of he can early to new guinea's dictator. he recently ran afoul of french customs who discovered that his chartered chet had 26 supercars on it -- jet had 26 supercars on it including five ferraris, five bentley five rolls royces, and two bughattis. is anybody besides me mad that we're sending foreign aid to african dictators whose sons are importing rolls royces, bentleys ferraris and benghattis to africa and countries who have no electricity? i don't care if you're the biggest humanitarian in the world and you want to help people -- it's not going to the people. the foreign aid is stolen by the leadership of these countries and this isn't one example, this is example after example decade after decade. and the learning curve around here is so slow that we will get 10 maybe 20 senators to place any restrictions on foreign aid. 70% of the people living in africa live under the poverty threshold -- $2 a day
-- bring these extremists to justice and press on with the democracy and freedom that the people of libya deserve and have earned at great loss of blood and treasure. mr. lieberman: mr. president, i couldn't agree more with my friend from arizona. it would -- it would really dishonor the service of chris stevens and the three other americans who served us in libya if their murders by these extremists led us to retrench and pull out of libya and stop supporting the new libyan government, democratically elecd, pull out of other parts of the arab world. that would be exactly the opposite of what ambassador stevens devoted his life to. as i mentioned, inspired by his experience as a peace corps volunteer in morocco, devoted the rest of his life to service on america's behalf in the -- in the middle east. the last thing he would want this murder to do is to lead us to pull out, leave the area. and it would also be the fondest hope of the attackers, the extremists. why do that he tack? they attack to kill individual people but they really attk to, as i said before, push america out and create a

to start with what happened in libya and give us your perspective. these assailants were heavily armed. it they seemed to be organized. does it seem to you perhaps to have been timed for 9/11, was it an attack of opportunity? >> i really don't know. but it is unusual in that libya is really the most pro american country in the region. the ambassador was be loved in libya. he had helped save benghazi, the city in which he was murdered. and libya as responded pretty appropriately. the government immediately condemned the attack, you have ordinary libyans apologizing for it. the real failure here has been in egypt where president morsi has been awol. >> what do you make of the president's comments, well, you know, friend or foe, well, neither really. >> i think that what you're seeing is what we knew was going to happen after the arab spring. there was going to be a period where you would have all these new governments with weak mandates, with ever shifting loyalties, with poor security forces and that there would be a period of chaos. we can't know how it would shake out, but we're seein
